I have an ATI All-In-Wonder Radeon and convert VHS to DVD on occasion. I use a Philips DVD+RW1208 to burn. Also, I do what LHSer recommends and always save the VHS to AVI originally for best quality.
Eventually, you will have to convert it to MPEG2, not MPEG1, if you want it to burn on a DVD.
1. VHS to AVI using the all-in-wonder.
2. AVI to MPEG2 using Pinnacle Studio (allows adding of credits, transitions, etc., i.e. Adobe Premiere is similar I believe).
3. A little program called TMPGEnc to clean up the MPEG2 file.
4. I use Uleadís DVD Movie Factory to burn to DVD. BTW, I tried the Sonic DVD 3.0 software that came with my burner but didnít care for it.
Good luck, and get the fire extinguisher ready for the wallet.
BTW, if you want a cheaper alternative, go SVCD and you can burn with a regular CD burner. Resolution is close, and you may not even notice the difference when converting VHS.

Again, good luck.
